We can do MUCH better

The headline seems to beg the question of just where should a Mayor of a conservative, Mormon dominated, Idaho city keep his bong? At work? In the car? The safe deposit box? For a guy who never has a hair out of place it is an odd oversight.

I remember hearing a story once of a college student leaving various sundry items at the parents' house only to return home to find his mom had found and unknowingly converted his bong into a nice little prominently displayed vase. Was that in a movie?

This should be a good reminder that we should regularly clean out our basement. Instead of waiting until "Antiques Roadshow" comes to Idaho, I have a suggestion: donate the stuff to a non-profit organization that promotes democracy and social justice! I just happen to know of one that's preparing to do an "on-line yard sale" this fall...


Stumbled across your blog this evening. Very spirited and humorous. Thought you should know about this little gem: http://www.britebluedot.com/ It's caught on like wildfire around here--spreading joy and hope wherever it goes. Seeing them in traffic has kind of fueled my hope even in the oppressive heat of my red-state commute this summer.

Jim, keep us posted on those sale plans. Sounds like a cool event.

Speaking of yard sales, my family will have a table at the annual neighborhood sale held this Saturday (August 25) from 8 to 1 at Whitney Baptist Church, 2309 W Dorian St, one block south of Overland near the Vista intersection. We'll give 10 percent of our table's take to Habitat for Humanity. So if you crave an inflatable rowboat, a small inflatable backyard pool, or a Keep Portland Weird T-shirt, check it out! I'll probably have a pretty good selection of CDs and books, too. No bongs, though.
